This initiative will contribute to the community’s development and the well-being of the 11 families from this village in La Guajira.

The community was happy to receive this contribution from Drummond Ltd. Fredy Fonseca, resident of Trigo, expressed: “For our community, it is gratifying to have an ally as important as [Drummond’s] Hydrocarbons Division, because it has made sure that Trigo’s community hall has all the necessary elements, taking care of every detail and listening to our needs. With the items we received, we will be able to carry out academic training activities, promote recreational opportunities for our children, and it can also serve as a meeting space for all of our residents to come together.”

Meanwhile, Noreida Solano, on behalf of the company’s Hydrocarbons and Mineral Exploration Division, said: “Thanks to the items that were supplied, we are helping to carry out the activities that are performed in this area, which can be held within the infrastructure of the community hall, making this a meeting place for the people from this rural area in order to promote social cohesion and community empowerment.”
